Personal Finance Week in Review – Ryder Cup Edition

by Sean Bryant on September 30, 2012

Every other fall the best golfers in the world come together for the Ryder Cup.  Being a golf fan this is one of my favorite times.  The competitiveness and will to win for each team is always high.  This year the US went into the final day with a commanding lead and what seemed like a smooth ride to victory.  How things can change in the matter of a few hours.  The European squad made what might be the greatest Ryder Cup comeback in history to retain the cup.  While I never want to see my home country be defeated, it was a great day for any golf fan.

    Thanks for the mention Sean. I am not much of a golf fan, but heard it was quite a comeback. I enjoyed football myself and some time with the family.

  • Kim

    Thanks for including me. You know, lots of golfers have LASIK surgery, even Tiger Woods. They say it makes the hole look bigger. I’m so bad at golf it wouldn’t help me, but interesting thought.

  • Jason @ WorkSaveLive

    Man, that was a brutal choke job by the Americans. We just don’t have the golfers that the Europeans do…especially when Tiger is terrible in that setting.
